19 Crimes the Uprising Aged 30 Days In Rum Barrels South Eastern Australia 2017

External Review by We Speak Wine:

TASTING NOTES: Medium red with bright ruby red hues, this wine confidently takes charge with Intense lifted mocha, caramel and sweet spice aromatics balanced with raspberry and blackberry fruits. Full and round on the palate with a distinct sweetness making the wine rich and mouth coating. The mocha and sweet spice aromatics carry through on the palate and compliment subtle flavours of brown sugar and cinnamon. The palate has a long rich plush finish filled with jammy blackberry and raspberry flavours. VINTAGE CONDITIONS: The growing season leading up to the 2017 vintage was challenging with extreme, sometimes isolated weather events resulting in some vineyards being hit by storm and hail. With a cool start to the season and with good soil moisture profiles, vintage commencement was generally late, running 3 – 4 weeks behind past seasons. The cooler weather and delayed ripeness, favoured good varietal fruit flavour development in the whites and strong varietal fruit flavour and good colour, across the main stream red varieties. Patience was needed to allow the red fruit to properly mature and to manage the risks associated with a late completion to harvesting. pH: 3.53 Acidity: 6.4g/L Alcohol: 15.0% Sugar: 12.0g/L

TASTING NOTES: In making 19 Crimes “The Uprising” we selected particular wine parcels for their spice and concentration of flavour providing the wine with great intensity and lusciousness on the palate. The vintage 2016 is Shiraz dominant lending bright raspberry fruit and plush tannin structure with Cabernet Sauvignon to provide blackberry fruits, palate weight and structure and then Grenache to provide spice and fruit sweetness on the palate. The nose has intense lifted mocha, caramel and baking spice notes. On the palate the wine is full and mouth coating with brown sugar, jammy blackberry and chocolate notes. VINTAGE CONDITIONS: Temperatures were significantly warmer than average during the spring and summer months.These weather conditions caused bud burst to occur at the usual time, but vine growth and development rapidly increased with flowering, and harvest dates occurring earlier than ever before on most vineyards.A dry winter and spring with little effective rainfall resulted in reliance on irrigation with little disease incidence.All fruit varieties matured rapidly, resulting in an unprecedented compressed vintage.Fruit fully ripened with good flavour and varietal definition. pH: 3.47 Acidity: 6.9g/L Alcohol: 15.0% w/v Residual Sugar: 12.0 g/L
